Versatile Blogger Award!

1. In a post on your blog, nominate 4 fellow bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.
2. In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award.
3. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you with a link back to their blog.
4. In the same post, include 7 random pieces of information about you.
5. In the same post, include this set of rules.
6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination with a comment on their blog.

Alrighty! I nominate:

1-) Claire, at Claire's Curiosity.
2-) Anna, at basilmentos.
3-) Emmie, at Emmie's Edition.
4-) Ali, at girloftheyearstudios blog.

Not sure if all of these people will do the post, but I totally think they deserve it. Oh, and thanks a million for nominating me Phoebe!
*EDIT* I've also been nominated by MissCpFreaks! Thank you too! :D

Tadaa! Now, here are my 7 random facts:
1-) I am flipping obsessed with the band Arctic Monkeys (I listened to them, and them only until about December), and I went to see them LIVE over March Break. It was the best day of my life.
2-) I just got a new camera! The Canon Rebel T3. I promise I will post some pics soon!
3-) I have my ears double-pierced.
4-) I have an abnormal obsession with George Harrison, Alex Turner, and about 10 other attractive people. I also think Roger Daltrey is my best friend.
5-) I have massive glasses, that look exactly like the glasses you get when you see a 3D movie, except I use them for real. I have a cataract in my left eye.
6-) I'm going in to grade 9 next year, and I've been fighting to keep PCVS (the high school I want need to go to) open. Our school board is full go jerks, and so far this year I've been to 4 political protests, one of which ended up with me having a massive pimple on my forehead.
7-) I am one of the most sick minded, talkative, social, crazy people, but somehow that doesn't show through in my blogging. I'm trying to work on having my personality show through in my blogging.

8-) I've tried about a billion times to write a novel, and I've never usually gotten past the 3rd or 4th chapter. (I needed to add this. Sorry!)

Thanks for reading! I hope you all enjoyed hearing about what a wonderful person I am :)

My little political activist

This is my tee shirt, that I made for a birthday gift I'm sending out to a friend. I'm really excited about how well it turned out! I just felt like showing it to you before I sent it off, but if you wanna see more pics, I'll be uploading a video to my YouTube of a photoshoot, which will have lots of 'em. If you want to know about the whole 'I heart PCVS' business, you can google 'save pcvs' to get the full story. I've explained this so many times, and I feel like I always explain it wrong! The jist of it, is that there's a school closing in our area and the shirt is part of a protest to save it :)

So far, the photo contest is going great! There are 2 wonderful entries so far. Keep it up, guys! This is really exciting for me! :D

Just Us Dolls Here's 1st Annual Photography Contest!

 Hello all of you blog readers! It's time for Just Us Dolls Here's 1st Annual Spring Photography Contest! There are only a few rules, so I'm going to dish them out first, then we can get to the fun bits :)

Official Rules

1-) You may only enter photographs of 18 inch dolls!  As much as I love porn... NO, I'm just kidding! No bitty babies or Mini Dolls, unless they're only part of the photograph please.
2-) YOU need to have taken the photo! Don't be a jerk and steal someone's photo, just because you're a terrible photographer. Use this as an opportunity to improve upon your skills!
3-) You may enter as many times as you want, so long as you only enter each photo once!
4-) One photograph per post. Please link individually to each post, because as smart as I am, I'm not going to roam around your blog searching for every single one of your 36 entries. Please be specific! Write: This is my 1st entry for Just Us Doll Here's Photography Contest! and INCLUDE YOUR LINK IN THE COMMENTS!
5-) The contest ends on March 27th, and the results will be up on the 31st!
6-) You do NOT need to give out your address if you win! Just your email address, because the prize is... (drum roll please!)

... a chance to guess post on Just Us Dolls Here, plus your blog's button at the top of my blog for all of April! (If you don't have one, I can make one for you!) The guest post may be anything of your choice, photo shoot, photo story, tutorial, etc. but it has to involve 18 inch dolls! I will be proofreading the post before it gets published, so make sure the content is appropriate.
 You don't need a fancy shmancy bajillion dollar camera to take a fantastic photograph, so here are some handy dandy photography tips!
 Try to use a tripod! Sometimes, when the lighting is just right, you don't need one, but in most cases it makes your pictures look marvelous.
 Don't use a flash, unless of course, that's the style of photography you're going for. Lots of photographers use flash for effect, but as far as I know, that's not the style you're going for, and isn't a nice substitute for natural lighting.
 On that note, use some pretty, nice, old fashioned natural daylight produced by our good ole friend the sun! It certainly gives your photos a nice vibrancy and effect to them.
 Make sure you doll(s) look their best. Dress them in pretty, fitting, stylish, appropriate (no bikinis in the snow!) outfits, and make sure their hair is tidy. Having them wearing shoes would be a good idea, unless you're really in to that hippy thang.

As far as photo editing goes, I really like the look of natural photos, but a little bit of winterize or cross process never hurt anyone :)
I can't wait to see your entries!
